Veterinary Specialist Referrals

Our experienced team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians provides many services at our clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Although we handle the majority of your pet’s medical and surgical needs in-house, we occasionally refer patients to veterinary specialists or specialty clinics when advanced training or equipment will be beneficial.

Board-certified specialists, such as oncologists, ophthalmologists, and neurologists, have extensive experience and training in a particular area of veterinary medicine or surgery. Specialty clinics and university-affiliated referral centers have specialized equipment to perform procedures that are not routinely performed by general veterinary practitioners.

We make referral decisions because we want to ensure that our patients receive the highest standard of care and best possible outcome. Be assured that when we refer a patient to another hospital, we continue to stay involved with his or her care, consulting with the treating specialist and often providing any needed follow-up care and rehabilitation.

Our clinic is also able to offer on-site care for certain specialties, thanks to the availability of mobile board-certified specialists. This includes orthopedics, dentistry and more recently imaging services.

If a referral / specialty procedure has been recommended we will ensure to review if this is an option for your pet, as mobile specialists not only offer their expertise, but help ease the stress of travelling and new surroundings.
